Apium P220

 

Apium enables the highest part quality in the additive production of high-performance polymers

The P220 is the only printer capable of printing both pure PEEK with high crystallinity and carbon fibre-reinforced PEEK with up to 30% fibre content.

Best Part Tolerances

The patented Adaptive Heating System analyses the printing geometry and adjusts the heating power to achieve always an optimum energy input. Without thermal post-treatment, you get even finer details and compliance with narrow tolerances. Due to the high stiffness and strength, even embossing dies for aluminium and stainless steel sheets can be printed.

New extrusion technology

Our extruder was developed with flexibility and robustness in mind. The feed force, which is four times higher than that of the previous model, makes it possible to process fibre-reinforced high-performance polymers with a high percentage of filling. The specially designed filament guide automates the loading process.

Monitored Printing Process

By integrating a camera system, temperature recording and the use of servo motors, the printing process is continuously monitored. This allows the printer to intervene independently when deviations occur.

Reproducibility

Integrated calibration routines guarantee consistent part quality. The software automatically notifies you of any maintenance work and guides you step-by-step through the procedures.

Documentation & Safety

All the important parameters of a printing process are automatically made available in a PDF protocol. The integrated user management prevents unwanted access. For your data security, we have decided against cloud based solutions.

Integrated Software

The control software is specially adapted to our printer hardware and optimized for processing high-performance polymers. An intuitive user interface allows easy operation of the printer. You can manage print jobs and check the status of the printer at any time.

Innovative Materials

The open system allows the use of other materials that are not available in our product portfolio. The P220 also allows the processing of metal filled filaments which can be sintered.

Technical Support

Our service department will train you in the handling of your printer. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the printer and other challenges of 3D printing of high performance polymers.

Material Extrusion (FFF) 3D Printing Technology

Material Extrusion 3D Printing (also known as Fused Filament Fabrication or Fused Deposition Modelling) is a 3D printing technology which is used for processing of filament form thermoplastic materials into three dimensional objects. The filament is fed from a large coil, through a moving gear system (extruder) into a heated mechanically translating print head and then extruded through a nozzle onto a surface. Subsequent deposition/extrusion of material onto the surface in a layer by layer approach results in the creation o the 3D object. The entire printing process is computer controlled ensuring that the necessary process control for high quality objects is realized. 

Software is a strength of Apium

Software is one of Apium’s core competencies. With the user interface on the printer touchpad, Apium provides the user with simple and efficient operation. Special service and maintenance functions facilitate daily use of the printer and allow detailed access to all settings. The web interface application makes it easy to monitor printing processes with the integrated camera from a remote workplace and manage the printer via the network.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which materials does Apium P220 support?

Apium P220 Series supports a wide variety of amorphous and semi-crystalline thermoplastics from ABS, PP, PVDF, PEI, PEEK, Carbon Fiber Reinforced PEEK to metal containing compounds such as Stainless Steel (316L). The system allows end users to print their materials of choice.

What is the geometrical challenge capability of Apium P220?

The advanced parameter control enables varied print parameters for challenging geometries in a single part. This unique capability overcomes most geometrical challenges.

Does Apium P220 provide material based optimal process parameters?
The system running on the Apium P220 recognizes the material type and tracks the amount used. When the Apium P220 identifies that an Apium material is loaded, it automatically adjusts the settings according to Apium`s material profile and allows you to use the optimal process parameters for high quality results.
What can Apium P220's extruder technology do?

Apium`s advanced extruder technology enables processing of reinforced, compound materials as well as pure materials. Our Advanced extruder can process materials containing higher proportions of carbon fiber or glass fiber such as 30% Carbon Fiber Reinforced PEEK.
